The new reboot set to kickstart and lay the groundwork for a shared cinematic universe full of monsters has not only swapped the charming era of the 1930’s for a darker, modern day setting, the new film has also opted for a female Mummy with Kingsman: The Secret Service and Star Trek Beyond star Sofia Boutella as Princess Ahmanet, an Egyptian Princess who was imprisoned when she summoned a great evil and murdered her father after he failed to uphold his promise to make her pharaoh after he sired a son.
The image released offers a new look at Cruise’s Morton after he’s returned from the dead. You can check it out at Yahoo Movies.
The film stars Tom Cruise, Sofia Boutella, Jake Johnson, Annabelle Wallis, Courtney B. Vance and Russel Crowe. Here is the official synopsis:
“Thought safely entombed in a tomb deep beneath the unforgiving desert, an ancient princess whose destiny was unjustly taken from her is awakened in our current day, bringing with her malevolence grown over millennia and terrors that defy human comprehension. From the sweeping sands of the Middle East through hidden labyrinths under modern-day London, The Mummy brings a surprising intensity and balance of wonder and thrills in an imaginative new take that ushers in a new world of gods and monsters.”
